Italian manufacturer Pirelli has swept to victory in Evo magazine's annual tyre test for 2012.
The Pirelli P Zero trumped rubber from Continental, Dunlop, Goodyear and other contenders to be declared the best tyre on offer.
"There’s no doubt about our winner. The Pirelli P Zero puts together a consistent and convincing set of objective test results and subjective scores to take the overall win by a good margin," the magazine stated.
The reviewers were especially impressed with the 'sparkle' the P Zeros brought to the steering of the test car (an Audi A3 1.8 TFSI with 168 horsepower.)
Each set of tyres was put through a rigorous examination on a circuit in the south of France, with wet and dry handling, braking and aquaplaning all taken into account. A drive on a mixed road route also gauged the tyres' performance in 'real world' conditions.
"We’re delighted to have the qualities of the P Zero tyre – the foundation for our premium range of products – recognised by such a prestigious publication as Evo," said Pirelli UK managing director Dominic Sandivasci.
